7 Complete Documentary Shorts

With the first ever Full Frame Documentary Shorts DVD, Docurama welcomes audiences to experience some of the most groundbreaking and dramatic films of the last several years. The preeminent documentary film festival in North America, Full Frame showcases over 100 documentaries each year (in association with The New York Times and a board that includes Martin Scorsese, Ken Burns, and Barbara Kopple). From the hilarious to the somber, the dramatic to the avant-garde, and from Hollywood veterans like Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding) to recent film school grads, there's enough on this DVD to throw a mini film festival of your own!
